Grown only in the fertile Hatch Valley of New Mexico, Hatch Chiles have a mild-medium heat and distinctively robust and earthy flavor not found in any other chile. Growers and Chefs alike say that the intense sunlight, hot days and cool nights in this valley result in a prized and uniquely flavored chile.
Hatch chiles are large, thick skinned, meaty and come in a variety of heat levels to suit every chile-lover’s craving. Purchase yours and Heinen’s will roast them for you this weekend to use in your favorite recipes like Chile Con Queso, Chile Rellenos, and Chile Verde. But, don’t stop there! Try roasting or grilling them to use in in rellenos, salads, soups, burgers, omelets, hot dogs, burritos, tacos, on pizza, corn bread, cookies, sauces and seafood. The possibilities are endless!
